Engility Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: EGL), a global provider of technical and professional services for the U.S. Government, today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012. The Company reported total revenue of $409 million and a GAAP loss from operations of $419 million. Adjusted operating income from operations was $31 million and adjusted operating margin was 7.5%, which exclude a total of $443 million before tax in spin-off related transaction costs, realignment expenses, legal settlement costs, and a non-cash goodwill impairment charge. GAAP net loss attributable to Engility was $25.80 per fully diluted share. Excluding the goodwill impairment charge and other non-core charges described above, which totaled $433 million after tax, adjusted earnings per diluted share (EPS) was $0.83. Information about Engility’s use of non-GAAP financial information is provided below under “Non-GAAP Measures.”

“The third quarter was marked by our strong operational performance, as well as the acceleration of our strategic initiatives to streamline our operations and redefine Engility as an independent industry-leading provider of government services,” said Tony Smeraglinolo, President and CEO of Engility. “We achieved a number of notable new business wins, including a contract for National Capital Region Security Engineering Services with the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic, and a key prime role on the U.S. Army’s Software and Systems Engineering Support NexGen contract vehicle. We also realized strong orders and a growing funded backlog, coupled with revenue and adjusted earnings per share that were in-line with our expectations and progress towards our full year guidance.”

Mr. Smeraglinolo continued, “In addition to our solid operational performance during the quarter, we accelerated our strategic realignment plan to reposition the Company. This will allow us to compete more effectively in the market conditions we expect as an agile, customer-focused and disruptively competitive organization. One output of our strategic review was the determination that we needed to approach the market in a more integrated manner and consolidate our two existing business segments. As we implement our realignment, our actions will further strengthen our competitiveness and position Engility for our next phase of growth.”

In connection with the preparation of its third quarter financial statements, the Company conducted an interim test of its goodwill as of September 28, 2012. The decision to conduct this review was a result of multiple events following the spin-off, including the change in Engility’s cost of capital as stand-alone company and its decision in September 2012 to consolidate its existing reporting unit structure. Following this review, the Company recorded a goodwill impairment charge of $426 million due to a decline in the estimated fair value of each reporting unit. The goodwill charge has no impact on business operations, cash balances, or operating cash flows. The Company also recorded $17 million in additional non-core charges during quarter, consisting of $4 million in spin-off-related transaction costs, $5 million in legal settlement costs, and $8 million in realignment expenses related primarily to severance and professional fees.

2012 Outlook

Based upon operating and business development performance through the third quarter of 2012, the Company expects its fiscal year 2012 results will be as follows:
    2012 Fiscal Year Outlook
Revenue   $1.6 billion
Adjusted Diluted EPS Estimate* $3.50 - $3.75
Cash Flow from Continuing Operations   $104 million

* Adjusted Diluted EPS, a Non-GAAP financial measure, excludes impairment charges, spin-off-related transaction costs, realignment expenses, legal settlement cost, and other potential adjustments. See “Non-GAAP Measures” below for additional information regarding Engility’s use of non-GAAP financial information.

Key Performance Indicators

Funded Backlog Funded backlog as of the end of the third quarter of 2012 was $788 million, compared to $753 million as of the end of the second quarter.

Orders Orders for the third quarter of 2012 were $444 million.

Book-to-Bill Our book-to-bill ratio was 1.1 for the third quarter of 2012.

Discontinued Operations

The Global Security Solutions business unit, which historically had been managed by Engility under the Professional Support Services segment, was retained by L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc. in connection with the spin-off and is shown as discontinued operations in Engility’s financial statements.

Non-GAAP Measures

The tables under “Engility Holdings, Inc., Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures” present Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted Operating Margin and Adjusted Diluted EPS, together with our forecast of Adjusted Diluted EPS, reconciled to their most directly comparable GAAP measure. These financial measures are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“Non-GAAP Measures”). Engility has provided these Non-GAAP Measures to adjust for the impact of (i) the goodwill impairment charge, (ii) transaction costs related to the Company’s July 2012 spin-off from L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc., (iii) severance and other costs related to the Company’s strategic realignment announced in September 2012 and (iv) litigation settlement costs. These items have been adjusted because they are not considered core to the Company’s business or otherwise not considered operational or because these charges are non-cash or non-recurring. The Company presents these Non-GAAP Measures because management believes that they are meaningful to understanding Engility’s performance during the periods presented and of the Company’s ongoing business. Non-GAAP Measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and therefore are not necessarily comparable to the financial results of other companies. These Non-GAAP Measures should be considered a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted diluted EPS guidance $ 3.50 $ 3.75

Adjusted diluted EPS guidance assumes 2012 diluted weighted-average shares of 17 million. Diluted weighted-average shares may differ due to, among other factors, the exercise of stock options, the settlement of restricted stock units and purchases under the Company’s 401(k) plan and employee stock purchase plan. This guidance also assumes (i) a full year adjusted effective tax rate of 39.2%, and (ii) additional realignment costs of $2.4 million and spin-off related transaction costs of $0.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Excluded from guidance are any potential future non-cash, non-recurring or otherwise non-operational or non-core expenses, including without limitation, additional impairment charges.
